David Weisel, Laura and Art Sussman, Matt Edson, John Herrick, John Hudachek, Adam Moffit and Pisgah State Park Manager Whip Newell met at 10 am on Saturday, August 8th at the Pisgah Visitors Center in Winchester.  The goal of the day was to build ramps on the South Woods Trail bridge that we rebuilt June 20, 2015 and to install new wear boards on the Fullam Pond Trail bridge.

Matt Edson had already ripped the ramp risers and cut the ramp decking into 5' lengths with material the Friends of Pisgah had purchased.  

Laura and Art Sussman rode their ATV while Matt, John Herrick and Whip drove their trucks and trailers down Old Chesterfield Road to the Nash Trail.  There Matt unloaded his ATV and ATV trailer.  Whip drove his truck and Matt and Art their ATVs down the Nash Trail to the Fullam Pond Trail.  Matt's ATV & trailer and Art's ATV transported the tools and lumber from there to the bridge site on the South Woods trail.  

We split into two groups.  Matt, David, Art and John Hudachek built the ramps on the South Woods bridge while John Herrick, Laura, Whip and Adam replaced the wear boards on the Fullam Pond Trail bridge.

After lunch we all drove down to Fullam Pond and continued the brush clearing that we worked on last November and July.  We were done by 2:00.  

Thanks to all for a very productive work day!
